THE PHILATELY

OF OUR NEIGHBORS

(a short overview in images)

This page gives only a quick idea about the influence of the SNA philately and of its great successes on the development of philately in the neighboring countries. It is also a testimony of the imagination of certain participants at the newsgroup rec.collecting.stamps discuss. Unfortunately the name of the anonym creators were lost. Those who can recognize their creations are asked to let them know to the webmaster. TIA.

PORTUGUESE NORTH AFRICA

   

Two modern classics of the PNA; attention - rare in the presented form!

GERMAN NORTH AFRICA

 

Excerpts from the years 1930,  1900, 1914 and again 1930, respectively. Please notice the error Deutsch on the first and the last stamp (the reason being that they were designed in Europe).

ANDORRAN NORTH AFRICA

The map shown in the background will help in the localization of presented issues. Consult also the first page of this site for the whole map. 

MINACKARS ISSUES

Issued in 1902 and 1929, both scarce. Attention UPU collectors, how many of yours have ever seen the stamp shown on the right?

The above stamps showing planes, that will accelerate the heart beats of any Air Mail collector, were issued in 1939. The One Pound stamp was overprinted in 1955.
